Ive seen this before and it usually means you have a dead motherboard.

Flashing green light on the circuit board. No power at all


I suggest it is the mother board or the power supply. Go to the Dell website on a friend's PC and download PDF manuals pertaining to your model. The battery may have enough power to light an LED.

Known issue, bad capacitors.

Examine the motherboard, if you see the bulging capacitors strip it for
parts (RAM, hard drive), trash the unit and buy a new computer.

Dell Dimension 8300 wouldn't start


Sounds like a power supply. You are getting the standby voltage and not the switched. plug all your wires in except the big 20 or 24 pin motherboard connector, take a small wire and short the green (PSU_ON) to black (ground) wires. This will simulate the computers "ON" signal. The fans should all spin up and your plugged in accessories should work, which means bad motherboard, if not bad power supply.

PC won't 4power on.


Failures in the motherboard, memory, or any installed card could cause that symptom. All I can suggest based on the above information is remove memory one piece at a time and retest, remove/reseat video card if you have one, and attempt to reset the CMOS using the jumper on the board. You might also try removing the battery on the board and unplugging everything, then attempt to reboot.

No power no light


Could be either one, or it could be the toggle switch.

Start with the easiest first to check. Unplug the power toggle switch from the mainboard and take a screwdriver or something and short out those two pins to see if it starts the pc. if it does, then your pc case switch is just bad.
If that's not the problem, check the power supply next.

Jumper the ATX 20 pin power cable's green wire to any black, just to make sure the power supply is working. The fans in the power supply will turn on along with anything else hooked up.

To jumper the power supply use a section of wire or a bread twisty (with the insulation removed from the ends) and just connect the green wire to any black wire on the 20 / 24 pin power connector. Make sure that the power switch on the back of the power supply is switched on.

If neither of those seem to be the problem, then most likely it is the motherboard or the processor.
